I'm a watch hobby collector, I own Citizen Promoters, Seiko, Pulsar, Wenger, etc. I needed a work watch for a busy professional protection job. A watch I can have a few scratches on and gets bumped a lot but no loss because of this price point. My likes, just look at that dial amazing! The markers outlined with gold. The hour hands and the lollipop minute hand. WoW! My experience with Citizen is quality, craftsmanship, and history. Also, this is a good starter watch for a beginning watch collector.
